The trip features St. Kevin’s monastic site, the vistas of Wicklow Mountains, panoramic tour of Dublin, travel on the gorgeous coastal roads of the Ring of Kerry, the magnificent Cliffs of Moher, and the intriguing Giant’s Causeway (for those who have chosen the extension). Plus, we will take a horse-drawn jaunting car ride, try our hand, or rather our feet, at Irish step-dancing, dine on Irish cuisine, and experience many Celtic traditions. Will you come along with us and dare to “Kiss the Blarney Stone?”
